Tasmania's Domaine Simha Wine Tasting Experience

Institut Polaire

Select Option

Highlights

Join us at Institut Polaire, the home of Domaine Simha Wines, for a unique tasting experience. Sessions cater from 2 - 10 persons and include 6 tasting samples accompanied by notes and a cheese platter to share.  Available from 12-4pm Saturdays and 3-5pm Sundays, please allow approximately 45 minutes. 

Crafted by hand, just 2-3 barrels of each Domaine Simha wine are made each year. An avant-garde approach shapes living wine relying on ancient knowledge and intuition. At heart lies the epic beauty of Tasmania’s pure natural environment, sparkling air and ancient soil. Founder and winemaker, Nav Singh spearheaded a new wave of winemaking in Tasmania, opening the doors to progressive styles that are highly sought by top sommeliers and collectors. Singh’s natural methods embrace harvesting by lunar cycle on fruit and flower days with wild fermentation, perfect natural balance and superb ageing potential. 

What You'll Get

Upon arrival at Institut Polaire, settle into the snowy, luxe interior taking a seat at the marble bar, or private tasting room for larger groups. Our cellar door team will guide you through 6 wine samples. Wines may include Domaine Simha Rao Chardonnay, Raya Sauvage, Rama Pinot Noir, Lotus Amphora Riesling, Lionheart Amphora Pinot, and Beauregard Amphora Pinot. Selection changes seasonally and with availability. A tailored cheese platter to share, enjoyed between samples, completes the experience.

The house of Simha originates from sanskrit for lion. To honour an heroic heritage, Domaine Simha wines take their titles from royalty and legends of the East. Crafted by hand in micro batches, just 2-3 barrels of each Domaine Simha wine are made. Single vineyard wines are shaped au naturel to harness the provenance of epic Tasmanian terroir and season. Methods embrace harvesting by lunar cycle on fruit and flower days, whole bunch wild fermentation with traditional pigeage, maturation in custom demi-muid oak and clay amphorae, basket pressing, bottling unfined and unfiltered with perfect natural balance.
